Diamante Beach

Located on the north coast of the Dominican Republic is Diamond Beach, so named because it is the gem of the island. Aside from its obvious beauty, Diamond Beach is a great choice for families because the waters are shallow for about a half a mile, and calm to boot.

Set in the Eastern side of the Dominican Republic, 4.2 miles south of Cabrera, Diamante Beach is on the North coast of Hispaniola. You might think about stopping by whether or not you are staying in the immediate vicinity. This beach is not just another beach attraction, it's special in that it's one of the few quiet beaches in the Dominican Republic. While Diamante Beach may be a little bit out of the way, it provides a rare chance to escape crowds of tourists.

How to Access The Beach
Diamante is located off Highway 5 just past Cabrera. Road signs will direct you straight to the shore.

Amenities and Ambiance

Diamante Beach cuts a rectangle shape into the north coast of the Domincan Republic, lined by low rock walls on either side and trees on all sides except the one leading out into the ocean. Freshwater streams dump into the lagoon, where the waters vary from teal to turquoise.

Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline, which is something to consider if you plan to spend a full day in the sun.

Diamante Beach brings visitors an angelic and relaxing experience, as the location that surrounds the beach is free of city-life and traffic.
